TEMwindows.com Adds New Separation Tool for Nanoparticle Researchers
New Separation Device Improves Nanoparticle Clean-Up and Purification
Information Courtesy of TEMwindows.com TEMwindows.com, a division of SiMPore, Inc., recently introduced the SepCon™ Spin Column, a revolutionary separation device that makes it possible to separate nanoparticles that differ in size by 5 nm or less. Designed specifically for nanoparticle separations, it utilizes SiMPore's ultrathin silicon nanoporous UltraSM® membrane. When compared to conventional polymer membranes, SepCon™ can fractionate nanoparticles between less than 5 and 40 nm with recovery of both fractions and will enable nanoparticle researchers to remove unused reactants from syntheses, purify samples through buffer exchange, and fractionate particles in a mixture according to size. The company expects to begin taking orders for the new product in January 2010. In the interim, interested researchers are invited to participate in a free product trial program (see www.simpore.com for details).
